Can they keep their friendship pure when their hearts long for more?

McKenna Nichols, a young wife abandoned by her husband in favor of his work, is left alone to raise their autistic child. She promised to love him until death parted them. But when circumstances drive a wedge into their marriage and Dane chooses to escape what life has dealt them, how long can she be strong? Can she remain faithful to her marriage vows when tempted by the friendship of an unlikely stranger?

Rudy Taylor, who senses McKenna's loneliness and understands the difficulty of raising her daughter, struggles to keep his concern for the young woman biblical. Will McKenna’s faith in God and Rudy’s commitment to his Lord be enough to keep their relationship simple until McKenna's husband one day returns?


      A heavily tattooed fellow, head wrapped in a red-and-yellow bandana and left ear sporting an earring, approached from the back of the room. Though Rudy didn’t know him, the man’s gaze penetrated his and the purposeful stride toward Rudy made him nervous. He glanced around to see if any others sat in the vicinity, but he remained the solitary diner in the corner. The sailor spoke to different ones as he passed them, but his attention remained focused on Rudy. As the big guy reached the table, he broke into a wide grin, a day’s growth of beard shadowing his jaw. “Hey, there. I’m Gonzales.” He stuck out his meaty palm, the little finger missing its top joint.
      “Taylor.” Rudy stood and grasped the outstretched hand—muscled, calloused, and confident.
      “Nice to meet you.” Where did these characters come from?
      Gonzales gestured for him to sit, grabbing a side chair beside him. “I saw you bow your head over your food a few minutes ago, and I said to myself, you must walk in faith.”
